How to Play Crazy Eights Card Game: Quick and Easy Guide

1 Min Read

Crazy Eights is a fun and fast-paced card game that’s easy to learn. Here’s a quick guide on how to play:

  • Setup: Use a standard 52-card deck. Deal five cards to each player (seven if there are only two players). Place the remaining deck face down as the draw pile, flipping the top card to start the discard pile.
  • Objective: Be the first to get rid of all your cards.
  • Gameplay: Players take turns matching a card from their hand to the top card of the discard pile by either rank or suit. If unable to match, draw a card from the draw pile. Eights are wild and can be played at any time; the player must declare the suit for the next turn.
  • Winning: The first player to discard all their cards wins the game.
